and to get the copycat wiped off the books. steve harris began in live in boca roo tone. steve? >> reporter: jon, this is the manages behind me that caused all the fuss. the locks have been changed in the past 24 hours. police rolled in 1:00 yesterday afternoon. they were looking for "loki boy", the brazilian national who squatted the last two months. they didn't find him. they found a house full of garbage. they pulled out the garbage and changed locks. they spoke to a number of neighbors that were worried about to hire their own private security. they say the two month ordeal is over. now they are relieved. >> i think we'll sleep better. the neighborhood will be quieter eventually. maybe not today. but maybe tomorrow. >> we're finally relieved. we'll go back to normal. >> reporter: "loki boy" was relying on an obscure florida law called, adverse possession. it really dates back to the 18 hundreds and was used to make sure farmland did not go fallow, to not allow squatters to move into million dollar mansions a number of florida officials are working hard to get that law off the books. >>
own party to move on reform. joining us now is steve kornacki, the co-host of msnbc's "the cycle." he is a senior writer for salon.com. good to see you. >> good to see you too. so i was trying to make the case there in the previous segment that the volume of political action to keep gun reform in the news and viable shows that they are cognizant, that reformers are cognizant of the way it's petered out in the past. they're trying to do something . do you think it is qualitatively different? >> i think it's quantitatively different, too. if you look at mentions of gun control in news articles, what you see in the pass is after mass shooting tragedy, after a t week, two weeks, it's gone. still more than 50% more than a month of this, that's different than in the past. if you look at tracking social media, tweets involving gun control, second amendment, nra, things like, there they actually have been spiking weeks out from sandy hook. january 9th when obama announced the task force, january 16th. these terms are trending now. that suggests there's engagement here but it's also among the
should be put away. thank you. >> steve is an independent caller in michigan. >> i want to repeat what the last gentleman said. i'm a junkie on these things. this hearing demonstrated the highest kinds of ways our government should work. the questions were on point, there's was little grandstanding. there was no politicking that i could see. people did have their points compared to the haguele hearings last week. this was the highest and i'm afraid the ones for hagel had to do with the quality of the candidates, particularly, mr. brennan. >> given the fact that was sensitive information. do you feel like you learned a lot from the hearing? caller: yes, i guess i learned more about brennan than i knew. he appears to be, at least by reputation in the way they talked about him that he's not going to be so secretive as some of the past c.i.a. directors have been. i'm sure there are things he committed to that he went be able to do. >> he spent time in the c.i.a. and he was former executive deputy director from 2001-2003. bill is on the republican line. bill, hello. caller: how are you? >>
